The property

Just a stone's throw from the River Barrow in County Carlow, this stunning mill worker's cottage offers exceptional accommodation in the heart of picturesque St Mullins. With three bedrooms, this Carlow cottage offers a taste of tradition without sacrificing on modern conveniences, such as those found in the fully-equipped kitchen. Enjoy your morning coffee in the small front garden which overlooks the river, or spend cool days curled up in front of the multi-fuel stove in the comfortable open plan living area. You'll feel as though you've stepped into a magical land when travelling to this Carlow cottage. Set in a sheltered valley with the River Barrow bubbling along through the centre, St Mullins is a picture postcard hamlet that time forgot, in the best way. Writers and artists seeking inspiration are sure to find that the tranquil surroundings recharge their creative batteries, while history hunters will find sites such as the ancient church and graveyard fascinating. Should you manage to pull yourself away from the serenity of your Carlow cottage, you'll enjoy visits to the nearby cities of Kilkenny and Waterford, both of which offer a bustling atmosphere and great shopping and dining options. Those looking for nature outings will enjoy exploring the stunning Hook Head Peninsula and the beaches at Tramore and Dunmore East. The beauty and tranquillity of this Carlow cottage will leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed, and yearning to return year after year.
